It's Friday already. Where does the time go? Time just goes by so fast for me. I guess it's better then being bored and having time drag. I've never been bored, well maybe the occasional dry sermon (sorry Pastor!), but other then that I can honestly say I am never bored. There is just so much to do all the time. Now there may be a day when I don't feel like doing all that there is to do but that's different. You all know the difference. :o)
Yesterday I helped a friend start cleaning out her house. She is moving into senior housing in a couple of months so has a lot of downsizing to do. She has lived in this house for over 50 years! She and her hubby had it built over 50 years ago for $6500.00! Can you imagine the difference it would be to build it now!?
As much as I know this is the right move for her I know that it will be hard. Change is hard. We have been going through things that bring back so many memories for her. She is strong and is doing well but I know this is not easy. When all is said and done life will be so much easier for her without the burdens of home ownership so she is happy. I am happy to be able to help her, she is a good friend.
I also have been going through stuff in my kitchen getting ready for the remodel. Can you actually eat something that is outdated by about 4 years? I think not! How can something stay in a cupboard for 4 years????! It was one of those little cake mixes in the small box that I use when I make rhubarb dessert.
It's going to seem so nice to have cupboard doors that will stay closed, drawers that don't come off the runners when you open them and a microwave that actually has a turntable in it! I am so excited! I am going totally different with white cabinets and terracotta tile floors. I will take some before and after shots so that you can see the difference. The construction company is going to start tearing everything out a week from Monday.
Some of you asked me why I am going to Peurto Rico in a couple of weeks. No, it's not a vacation, it is business related. It is a convention not unlike the one that Needled Mom and I went to last month. Unfortunately I won't be seeing her on this one. :o( The one in Key Largo is the only one that we both go to each year as we deal with different companies other then that one. WAAAAAAAAAAA! I want you and E there with us!!!!!!!!!
We do have some fun things planned though. One being horseback riding! Yippee! I am so hoping that it is on the beach, I have always wanted to canter a horse through the waves coming up on the beach!! I hate to pack my riding boots though.........stinky...stinky...stinky! Guess I'll have to triple wrap them in big zip-lock bags!!
Okay I have a gripe. I haven't been on a rant for quite some time so you all knew one was imminent. How about you readers out there that never leave me a comment?????? I know you are there, I can tell by my sidebar thingy, sometimes it gives the actual town, like ACTON...hint hint!!! lol! Now we don't blog for comments but it is the frosting on the cake to get that feedback. Even if you don't have a blog you can still leave a comment. (DAD!!!!) 'Nuff said.
My friend is home from the hospital and doing quite well. The horses are doing fine with all of us pitching in to look out for them. Yesterday when Ann and I were up there the big appy cut himself right above the hoof. We had just turned them out and the owners husband was doing stalls and came and got us to take a looksy. We brought him in and got some warm water to wash it out so that we could see what we were dealing with. It was on one of his back legs and me with bifocals had to get right down on my knees to get my face close enough to be able to see. I was being careful though as even though I know this horse I have never dealt with an injury on him and didn't know if he would be touchy or not and certainly didn't want to get kicked in the face.
He was really good and didn't budge an inch while I washed it out. It wasn't deep, just took a patch of hide off about the size of a dime. Ann put some wound dressing on it and he was good to go. We think he stepped into some ice and just sliced it right off. It didn't look like he was kicked by one of the other horses or anything. We kept him in, gave him a nice big serving of hay and he was fine.
Miss T is doing well with her knitting. She is going to do a demonstration at school on Monday. I think she should do one on her pie making. She could show how to put it all together and then I could have a couple all cooked that the kids could all sample. I think I will mention that to her.
Thanks for all the comments on the senior discounts! Guess I shouldn't look a gift horse in the mouth! :o)
Guess that's it for Random Friday. Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
